Californication | “I’ll Lay My Monsters Down”
“I guess this is the first time in a video that I ever showed my arms since my arms had been scarred—cause my arms are pretty badly scarred. I guess people are always wondering so I might as well say that the way my arms got the way that they look was from abscesses, which came from shooting huge amounts of drugs. The results could have been a lot worse, so I’m happy to have the scars from a period of my life where I was living destructively just as a sign of what I’ve been through. And these days I’m being healthy, and taking care of my body is so important to me. But looking at it here it seems like my arms have gotten better since then…so that’s nice to see.” - John Frusciante in the making of the “Californication” music video
